Don't get me wrong the game is great, but the game was turned from a super realistic sim of evolution to a cartoony kiddy game.
I say this because looking back at the demonstration at GDC in 2005, which got me into the hype, the game looked much better.
Video Link-------> Link
It would be great if maxis released that version as a optional patch or standalone mod(game)
And I don't think it was over hyped at all.
At first everyone had a knee-jerk reaction when the game was released of not liking it. Slowly, I'm finding that myself and many others are starting to appreciate its technical achievements as well as looking forward to mods and expansion packs.
We got a great foundation for a legendary game, folkds. Just wait!
or even just an underwater expansion pack or something.
the way you build creatures changes a bit, and the way the camery works is different to the one in the video.
creatures dont hold their spears with their weapons like in that video.
but to be honest: that are all details. its not important, and doesn't influence the game in any way, so i would play it differently. (at least i can't imagine that)
the part about "realism" allways gets me into discussions, deep.
what part of the game would you like to be more realistic?
would you like to temper with DNA, and find out what pair of acids what part in the body invluence?
i allways do have a problem with realism. i don't want too much of it in my game. because its a GAME!!!
i see the game like StrangeFabs does.
there is SO much potential in it, that only needs to be unleashed by the player.
if you need a straight "'storyline'", and more action, go play GENERY SHOOTER™.
if you say there isn't enough depth to each stage, i say: where is your imagination?
remember playing with matchbox cars back then when you were a kid?
what did you have?
a car. nothing more. all the rest was your imagination, and i had a lot of fun with my matchbox cars back then! =)
